I am going into my fourth month and the side effects of jo my fourth month and the side effects joint and bone pain are now a daily occurrence. I take 3 capsules daily and I am curious if a reduction to 2 a day would alleviate this side effect. Also other side effects are light headiness, skin breakouts, slight bruising and fatigue. I am an 83 yr old male who for most of my life has not or does not take any drugs except Imbruvica for SLL. ## Such side effects are normal with this class of medications, according to the FDA and you should continue taking the amount your doctor has instructed you to take. You may also experience diarrhea, and anemia. Are you on any other medications or treatments? I hope you experience the best outcome possible!
